Modern Art – Conversations About Our Inner World
This modern art creation is inspired by Franz Kline’s abstract expressionistic style, as well as Rorschach’s inkblots. While walking on Strand Beach at sunset, a piece of driftwood caught my eye. It struck me that this branch had been carried away by a heavy downpour and found itself washed up in an unfamiliar place. And while in this repose, someone noticed its beauty and that someone was me.
The Japanese philosophy of Kintsugi is the art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold. It is built on the idea that by embracing flaws and imperfections you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art. It is essential to pay attention to your processes when responding to life’s challenges. Your attitude can make the difference between rising above the storm, thus gaining wisdom and strength, or being frightened by the sheer magnitude of it and crashing to pieces.
I named this One-Off digital print ‘Conversations About Our Inner World’ because it is reminiscent of looking up at the sky and taking a journey with the clouds. Indeed, we cannot remain in that moment indefinitely. Life is waiting, and we need to move on and grow in our destiny but, this does not mean that we should not occasionally take time to look up at the sky and remind ourselves of how far we have come.
Sometimes it is necessary to be taken out of our comfort zone, and this may include storms and breakages, but the process is an important one because the growth, restoration, and victory obtained far outweigh the discomfort.
